Behind all thoughts, emotions and behaviors is the communication between neurons in the brain that takes place through electrical impulses. When these impulses are synchronized, they create brain waves.These waves can be detected by electroencephalography (EEG) - a device that records the frequency ranges on the basis of which the type of wave is determined.
Let us remind you that the unit of frequency is Hertz (Hz) and represents the number of repetitions (frequency) of events in one second. The human brain functions within six types of waves – six frequencies. All of them are present at the same time, but only one is dominant in a certain state. It is this dominant wave and its characteristics that determines our current mood, mental abilities and state of consciousness.
Every process that changes perception also changes brain waves. For example: taking medication and soft drugs affects how you experience the world and the people around you, and then the brain waves are “directed” by the chemical substance you took. The food you consume also has a big impact on the activity of brain waves. The results of the research confirmed the influence of vitamins and minerals from food, while it is very difficult to precisely determine the influence of foods individually.
Disturbed rhythm and instability of brain waves cause numerous symptoms that are incorrectly called diseases. Some of these symptoms are: tics, obsessive compulsive disorder, aggressive behavior, anger, panic attack, bipolar disorder, migraine, epilepsy, sleep apnea, tinnitus, anorexia, bulimia, explosive behavior, etc.
These are the fastest and most subtle waves. They refer to the simultaneous processing of information from different parts of the brain. Gamma brain waves have long been neglected, until researchers have discovered that they are waves that occur in states of universal love and virtue.
Gamma waves are thought to occur in states of expanded consciousness. These are waves of genius and people with a high degree of awareness. They are also responsible for the so-called mystical and astral experiences, a high level of concentration and concentration. The instability of these waves leads to: anxiety, excitement, stress, ADHD, depression, inability to learn …
These waves are directed towards the outside world and cognitive affairs. These are fast waves, present when we are awake, careful, engaged in problem solving and reasoning, when we are focused on mental activities and when we make decisions.
There are three types of beta waves:
Low – relaxed attention
Medium – when we are focused on something
High – are present in states of alertness, anxiety, excitement and stress
If the state of high beta brain waves lasts for a long time, the brain begins to work outside the healthy framework – some areas of the brain cease to be in coordination with others and begin to function separately from others or even quite the opposite.
The instability of these waves causes excess adrenaline, anxiety, great excitement, inability to relax, stress, ADHD, depression, reduced ability to cognition.
Unsynchronized beta waves are useful for short-term memory and routine work. In everyday life, when you feel that you have “fallen out” of the beta wave (let’s say you are napping), you usually reach for some means of “returning” to the beta, such as coffee, energy drinks and other stimulants.
They dominate when you are relaxed and when thoughts flow slowly, when you dream and are present in some meditative states as well. Alpha waves help with overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind and body integration, and learning. At the age of six to eight, children function on alpha waves. At this stage of life, the development of the analytical mind begins and children begin to interpret information that comes from outside, drawing conclusions about how the world works.
The instability of these waves leads to daydreaming, distraction and inability to focus. Alpha waves will increase alcohol, marijuana and some antidepressants. They can register already when the eyes are closed and the mind is calm. They are often dominant during activities such as yoga.
These waves are active in states when the senses withdraw from the outside world and are directed to internal signals and sensations. In the theta state you are open to “programming” because then there is a thin line between the conscious and subconscious mind. In the subconscious are your fears, traumas, nightmares, blockages and many other problematic and unresolved issues, so the state dominated by Theta waves is ideal to remove all that unwanted burden, and the most famous technique for such work is hypnosis.
These waves are active during lucid dreaming – then these people are both awake and asleep. Theta wave instability is manifested through ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), depression, hyperactivity, impulsivity, rudeness and negligence, anxiety, poor emotional awareness, stress…
These are very slow and “loud” waves, they penetrate deep through the body and you can imagine them as a slow rhythmic beating of the drum. These brain waves exclude external awareness and are a source of empathy.
From birth to the second year of life, children function with the dominance of delta brain waves. For example, it is a condition when babies sleep with their eyes open and the dominance of delta waves explains why a newborn cannot stay awake for more than a few minutes. Instability occurs with brain injury, inability to think (various causes), severe ADHD, inability to regenerate the body, inability to revitalize the brain, poor sleep…
The slowest brain waves have been observed in very advanced meditators. They are the basis for more brain function. Due to the slowness of these waves, they are difficult to detect and measure, so very little is known about them.
They appear in very deep and advanced states of yoga and meditation, in ecstatic states of consciousness, in spiritual and extraterrestrial mystical experiences. Previous research has shown that it is not possible to predict when these waves will appear.
